  • This dataset contains a time series of ice velocities for the Petermann glacier in Greenland derived from intensity-tracking of ERS-1, ERS-2 and Envisat data acquired between 16/08/1991 and 01/06/2010. It provides components of the ice velocity and the magnitude of the velocity and has been produced by the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG3413: Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E) with 500m grid spacing. Image pairs with a repeat cycle of 1 to 35 days are used. The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards EASTING(x) and NORTHING(y) direction of the grid, and the vertical displacement (z), derived from a digital elevation model, is also provided. The product was generated by GEUS (Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland).

  • This dataset contains a time series of ice velocity maps for the Kangerlussuag Glacier in Greenland derived from Sentinel-1 SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) data acquired between January 2015 and March 2017. This dataset has been produced by the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. Data files are delivered in NetCDF format at 250m grid spacing in North Polar Stereographic projection (EPSG: 3413). The horizontal velocity components are provided in true meters per day, towards the EASTING(x) and NORTHING(y) directions of the grid.

  • This dataset contains optical ice velocity time series and seasonal product of the Jakobshavn Glacier in Greenland, derived from intensity-tracking of Sentinel-2 data acquired between 2017-06-03 and 2017-09-08. It has been produced as part of the ESA Greenland Ice sheet CCI project. The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG 3413:Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E) with 50m grid spacing. The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards EASTING (x) and NORTHING (y) direction of the grid. The data have been produced by S[&]T Norway.

  • This dataset contains a time series of ice velocities for the Hagen glacier in Greenland, derived from intensity-tracking of ERS-1, ERS-2 and Envisat data acquired between 26/08/1991 and 7/5/2010. It provides components of the ice velocity and the magnitude of the velocity, and has been produced by the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG3413: Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E) with 500m grid spacing. Image pairs with a repeat cycle of 6 to 35 days are used. The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards EASTING(x) and NORTHING(y) direction of the grid, and the vertical displacement (z), derived from a digital elevation model, is also provided. The product was generated by GEUS (Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland).

  • The data set provides calving front locations of 28 major outlet glaciers of the Greenland Ice Sheet, produced as part of the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The Calving Front Location (CFL) of outlet glaciers from ice sheets is a basic parameter for ice dynamic modelling, for computing the mass fluxes at the calving gate, and for mapping glacier area change. The calving front location has been derived by manual delineation using SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) data from the ERS-1/2, Envisat and Sentinel-1 satellites and satellite imagery from LANDSAT 5,7,8. The digitized calving fronts are stored in ESRI vector shape-file format and include metadata information on the sensor and processing steps in the corresponding attribute table. The product was generated by ENVEO (Environmental Earth Observation Information Technology GmbH)

  • This dataset contains ice velocities for the Greenland margin for winter 1995-1996. This dataset has been produced by the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. This dataset consists of ice velocity maps which have been generated from SAR data from the ERS-2 satellite for winter 1995-1996. The data is supplied on a 500m polar stereographic grid. The ice velocity product contain the horizontal components, vN and vE, of the total velocity vector, which is derived from radar measurements assuming surface parallel flow. The used digital elevation model of the surface is also supplied. The North and East velocities at any grid points are given in a local geographic north-east coordinates system (and not in the used grid map projection system).

  • This dataset contains a time series of ice velocities for the Petermann Glacier in Greenland, derived from Sentinel-1 SAR data acquired between 23/1/2015-10/6/2016. It has been produced by the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. Data files are delivered in NetCDF format at 250m grid spacing in North Polar Stereographic projection (EPSG: 3413). The horizontal velocity components are provided in true meters per day, towards the EASTING(x) and NORTHING(y) directions of the grid.

  • This dataset contains ice velocities for the Greenland Northern Drainage Basin for winter 1991-1992, which have been produced as part of the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The data has been derived from intensity-tracking of ERS-1 Ice phase (3 days repeat) data aquired between 29th December 1991 and 22nd March 1992. The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG3413: Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E). The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards EASTING(x) and NORTHING(y) direction of the grid, and the vertical displacement (z), derived from a digital elevation model, is also provided. (Please note that in earlier versions of this product the horizontal velocities were provided as true East and North velocities). Both a single NetCDF file (including all measurements and annotation), and separate geotiff files with the velocity components are provided. The product was generated by DTU Space - Microwaves and Remote Sensing. Please note - this product was released on the Greenland Ice Sheets download page in June 2016, but an earlier product (also accidentally labelled v1.1) was available through the CCI Open Data Portal and the CEDA archive until 29th November 2016. Please now use this later v1.1 product.

  • This dataset provides the Gravitational Mass Balance (GMB) product derived from the GRACE satellite instrument, by TU Dresden. The data consists of two products, a mass change time series for the Greenland Ice Sheet and individual basins, and mass trend grids for 5-year periods. The mass change time series contains the mass change (with respect to a chosen reference month) for all of the Greenland Ice Sheet and each individual drainage basin. For each month (defined by a decimal year) a mass change in Gt and its associated error (also in Gt) is provided. The mass trend grid product is given in units of mm water equivalent per year. Mass balance is an important variable to understand glacial thinning and ablation rates to enable mapping glacier area change. The time series allows the longer term comparison of trends whereas the mass trend grids provide a yearly snapshot which can be further analysed and compared across the data set.

  • This dataset provides the Gravitational Mass Balance (GMB) product derived from gravimetry data from the GRACE satellite instrument, by TU Dresden. The data consists of two products: a mass change time series for the entire Greenland Ice Sheet and different drainage basins for the period April 2002 to August 2016; and mass trend grids for different 5-year periods between 2003 and 2016. This version (1.3) is derived from GRACE monthly solutions from the CSR RL06 product. The mass change time series contains the mass change (with respect to a chosen reference month) for all of the Greenland Ice Sheet and each individual drainage basin. For each month (defined by a decimal year) a mass change in Gt and its associated error (also in Gt) is provided. The mass trend grid product is given in units of mm water equivalent per year. Mass balance is an important variable to understand glacial thinning and ablation rates to enable mapping glacier area change. The time series allows the longer term comparison of trends whereas the mass trend grids provide a yearly snapshot which can be further analysed and compared across the data set. Basin definitions and further data descriptions can be found in the Algorithm Theoretical Baseline Document (ST-DTU-ESA-GISCCI-ATBD-001_v3.1.pdf) and Product Specification Document (ST-DTU-ESA-GISCCI-PSD_v2.2.pdf) which are provided on the Greenland Ice Sheet CCI project website. This GMB product has been produced by TU Dresden for comparison with the existing GMB product derived by DTU Space. Please cite the dataset as follows: Groh, A., & Horwath, M. (2016).
